From Wikipedia
Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events that are causally unrelated occurring together in a meaningful manner. To count as synchronicity, the events should be unlikely to occur together by chance.

What is Synchronicity?

The term synchronicity is coined by Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) to express a concept that belongs to him. It is about acausal connection of two or more psycho-physic phenomena. This concept was inspired to him by a patient's case that was in situation of impasse in treatment. Her exaggerate rationalism (animus inflation) was holding her back from assimilating unconscious materials. One night, the patient dreamt a golden scarab - cetonia aurata. The next day, during the psychotherapy session, a real insect this time, hit against the Jung's cabinet window. Jung caught it and discovered surprisingly that it was a golden scarab; a very rare presence for that climate.

The concept does not question, or compete with, the notion of causality. Instead, it maintains that just as events may be grouped by cause, they may also be grouped by their meaning. Since meaning is a complex mental construction, subject to conscious and subconscious influence, not every correlation in the grouping of events by meaning needs to have an explanation in terms of cause and effect.

The idea of synchronicity is that the conceptual relationship of minds, defined as the relationship between ideas, is intricately structured in its own logical way and gives rise to relationships that are not causal in nature. These relationships can manifest themselves as simultaneous occurrences that are meaningfully related—the cause and the effect occur together.

There is a common thread among you who call me friend, I see it manifest in your e-mail and blogs.
Whatever you do my friends; Hold on tight to your Dreams!

I knew that my friend Paula Khoo was suffering, not because she said so, but because I could feel it. Perhaps how we feel is very much dependent on mood of those we care about, even if you are half a world apart. So it would seem Paramount that for the sake of the collective, that I too, should hold tight to my dreams of a better world.

It is this time and this place that matter--not some other time or place. What matters is here and now--the people here and now.

Synchronicity is fantastic. It opens up entirely new dimensions and makes life fascinating.

Our traditional understanding of GOD and creation, is indeed very primitive. Being formulated and then interpreted our illiterate ancestors. Who's technology was no greater than banging rocks together. Yet we know that the most profound truths can be found evident in the simplest of things. However, a creator of worlds does not do His work by candle light. The matrix is real. As any true mathematician, theoretical physicist, artist-philosopher, religious zealot or your average 3rd grader with an active imagination will tell you, there are places...out of the body places...where your mind can take you that are so supremely clear, serene and rich with universal awe that pounding your flesh, while not to be missed, pails.

In simpler words, there is an upper, all-inclusive force, or “the Creator,” governing everything in reality. All the world’s forces descend from this comprehensive force. Some of these forces are familiar to us, such as gravity or electricity, while there are forces of a higher order that act while remaining hidden to us.

It is said that "Kabbalah" holds the map or the knowledge of how these hidden forces are structured, and the laws by which they influence us. It teaches us how to develop a sense of these forces, and finally, discover their only purpose – to bring us to the revelation of the Creator, while living in this world
